What are you hiding, Mr Key?

.

More than ever, people’s curiosity is mounting over just what was recorded in the “Teapot Tapes“. John Key’s assurances that the tapes hold nothing of interest seem to be of dubious value,  since he has now referred the matter to the Police for investigation.

By referring the matter to the Police, it’s a rather ham-fisted attempt to close down the issue. Fat chance. (Although it now gives John Key the standard excuse,  “I-can’t-comment-on-an-ongoing-police-investigation”,  when journalists press him on this issue. Clever lad, John.)

Things have become more interesting…

The ‘Herald on Sunday’ advised the public that they had destroyed their copy of the tape… but not before passing a copy on to another media outlet – TV3!

Today, TV3 ran this story on the “Teapot Tapes”,

TV3 have been warned by Police not to air the tape or publish a transcript.

However, that didn’t stop TV3 reporter, Rebecca Wright from asking John Banks a series of questions;

“1. Did you talk about Don Brash at all?

2. Is there going to be a restructure of the ACT party after the election?

3. Do you think that people who are going to vote for you have a right to know if Don Brash isn’t going to be there after the election?”

Which kind of gives away what was discussed by the Two Johns: ACT’s leadership.

Judging by John Key’s reticence in releasing the “Teapot Tapes”, he said something that – at the very least – might be highly embarressing to him, publicly.

Little wonder that Brash, Banks, Key, and ACT/National supporters don’t want the contents of these tapes made public.

It makes them look like utter wallies.

    Why does it make ACT/National supporters look like wallies? What in a speculation about Don Brash’s leadership post election reflects on the supporters of those parties?

    Messages posted on other internet fora, by National/ACT supporters, oppose the release of the “Teapot tapes”, citing “privacy concerns”.
